60 Minutes Australia - Island of horror

"As far as gripping, real-life crime thrillers go, this one has everything. A mutiny, a psychopath and a brutal mass murder. It’s a 388-year-old cold case mystery that dates back to 1629 when the Dutch sailing ship, Batavia, struck a tiny atoll off the West Australian coast near Geraldton. Almost 300 passengers and crew survived the shipwreck but over the next few months, as they waited to be rescued, more than 100 were slaughtered. For centuries their bodies lay buried, the story forgotten. But now the search for the truth about Australia’s greatest mass murder is underway as archaeologists from Australia and the Netherlands dig up new clues – and victims."

Chandler Burr - Synthetic No. 5

"It isn’t even the norm. I was in an extremely elegant bastion of perfume recently — gorgeous and innovative, with surprising scents — when I complimented a woman buying Chanel No. 5 on her choice. And she said, 'Yes, I buy Chanel scents because they’re made from 100 percent natural products.'

"Huh?"

Noel Coward's This Happy Breed (1989)

"Written by Noel Coward. The story of a 20-year period from June 1919, when the Gibbons family move in to their new home near Clapham Common, and the adventures they encounter, to June 1939, when they leave it."

The story of the play concerns the working class Gibbons family between the end of World War I and the outbreak of World War II. It anticipates the non-violent ways in which social justice issues might be incorporated into post-war national reconstruction, examines the personal trauma caused by the sudden death of sons and daughters and anticipates the forthcoming return of English men from the war. It is also an intimate portrait of the economy and politics of Great Britain in the 1920s and 1930s (such as the General Strike of 1926), as well as showing the advances in technology – the arrival of primitive crystal radio sets and telephones, home gas lights being replaced by electricity and mass broadcast radio.

Vessel

Thomas Heatherwick's Vessel, inspired by Indian stepwells, tops out at Hudson Yards.

The 150-foot tall, bronzed-steel and concrete Vessel is designed to react to its surroundings in both material and function. Containing over 2,400 steps, 80 landings and 154 flights of stairs, the sculpture gradually widens out from a 50-foot base to a 150-feet diameter at the top, and will offer visitors unobstructed views of the surrounding Hudson Yards neighborhood and the other side of the Hudson River.

Stories of Finnish Art - Akseli Gallen-Kallela, 'Lemminkäinen's Mother' (1897)

"Akseli Gallen-Kallela painted some powerful interpretations of the Finnish national epic, The Kalevala. Among the most moving of these was the Symbolist painting Lemminkäinen's Mother, in which youthful bravado and recklessness have driven the hero to destruction. The scene is set in the realm of the dead, by the river of Tuonela, from which there is no return. And yet the power of a mother’s love transcends the bounds of humanity, and the dead awaken to life. The film takes the viewer deep into another world, into limbo, into a land that does not exist."
